bias in the sense of using one report to fit one's argument. yes, temps and it's impact on humans are no question kind of a big deal.

again, i have no issue at all with trying to fix things in the environment. my whole beef is some groups or individuals have hitched their wagons to climate change with no goal or motive to fix anything but their bank accts.

and the masses will take whatever is thrown their way, the deniers or the truthers, and not vet things and do their own DD.


Who is making all this money? Outside of Al Gore of course

So you believe that climate change is man made and potentially catastrophic.

Glad we're on the same page again.

thats what i thought.

and of course there are man made elements. we kind of are the ones who invented pollution. remember?

and of course if some things don't get better, it can be catastrophic. duh.

Well the link seems to suggest that global warming is a problem, but we should just try to find a way to compensate rather than stop whats causing it in the first place. Probably a more realistic solution though, because we certainly arent using less power going forward.

Dont know about the "Stratoshield," mainly because it involves pumping an ozone destroying chemical into the bottom of the ozone layer

so basically pstall's mad that people keep arguing over whether or not man made global warming is real but instead of targeting the numbskulls who keep making stupid fuging arguments against it and in turn prohibit real policy change, he's just mad that scientists are receiving grants to keep showing that global warming is real. is that what this is about? because environmental scientists can literally list dozens of policies that would have real, positive impacts in the fight against global warming but they're perpetually blocked by lobbyists, dumb policymakers and their dumb constituents

Cantrell I wonder if when you are at the beach and one of those little airplanes fly by with an ad banner on the back of it you aren't the only one there who goes to buy suntan lotion when the ad was saying its free.
